“Vampires going to high school, but make it queer. Sterling delivers a fresh, thoughtful take on beloved paranormal tropes with a delightfully bloody romance.” —Mara Fitzgerald, author of Beyond the Ruby Veil



From the author of These Witches Don’t Burn comes another paranormal romance for fans of Richelle Mead and Stephenie Meyer.


Elise Beaumont is cursed. With every touch, she experiences exactly how her loved ones will die. And after her brother’s death—a death she predicted but was unable to prevent—Elise is desperate to get rid of her terrible gift, no matter the cost.



Claire Montgomery also has a unique relationship with death, mostly because she’s already dead. Technically, anyway. Claire is a vampire, and she’s been assigned by the Veil to help Elise master her rare Death Oracle powers.

At first, Elise is reluctant to work with a vampire, but when she predicts a teacher’s imminent murder, she’s determined to stop the violent death, even if it means sacrificing her own future to secure Claire’s help.

The trouble is, Claire and Elise aren’t the only paranormals in town—a killer is stalking the streets, and Claire can’t seem to shake the pull she feels toward Elise, a romance that could upend the Veil’s mission. But as Elise and Claire grow closer, Elise begins to wonder—can she really trust someone tasked with securing her loyalty? Someone who could so easily kill her? Someone who might hold the key to unraveling her brother’s mysterious death?

FOLLOW UP TO SPELLBINDING SERIES: With all the reader and online love for the These Witches Don’t Burn duology, Isabel Sterling has established herself as a YA author to watch. She’s charmed readers and gatekeepers alike and has fully immersed herself in the YA community, building a dedicated group of fans eager for her next swoony sapphic read.

FORBIDDEN ROMANCE: A human girl with a gift for seeing how people will die and a vampire who is dead already might seem like an unlikely pair, but somehow these two very different girls find themselves drawn to each other, and watching their slow-burn romance unfold is so satisfying.

BACK FROM THE DEAD: With the recent release of Midnight Sun and the popularity of shows like What We Do in the Shadows, it’s clear that we’re in the midst of a vampire renaissance. Isabel Sterling’s romantic, compulsively readable contemporary fantasy will be a welcome addition to the genre.

STRONG LGBTQ+ REPRESENTATION: A member of the LGBTQ community herself, author Isabel Sterling tells a steamy, compelling story that features characters who identify across the queer spectrum.

Isabel Sterling is an LGBTQ advocate, foster mom, and author of These Witches Don’t Burn, This Coven Won’t Break, and This Spell Can’t Last. When she’s not writing, Isabel can be found crocheting projects she’ll never finish, completing crosswords with her wife, and trying not to destroy her garden. She lives in Central New York, where the winters are frigid, the summers are too hot, and autumn is perfect.
